Linguistic-exegetical note on Aen. 2, 121. This paper aims to offer a linguistic explanation for the unexpected use of the verb paro in Aen. 2.121. Drawing on parallel passages in Homer, and comparing other cases of intransitive constructions of usually transitive verbs in Latin, the author argues that paro assumes here a reflexive meaning while maintaining an active intransitive construction, which is technically called an 'anticausative' value.
